About The Event

Wear Orange originated on June 2, 2015, the 18th birthday of Hadiya Pendleton, who was shot & killed on a playground in Chicago two years prior in 2013, a week after marching in President Obama’s 2nd inaugural parade. Hadiya’s childhood friends decided to commemorate her life by wearing orange, the color hunters wear in the woods to protect themselves and others.  The 9th National Gun Violence Awareness Day is June 2nd this year, followed by Wear Orange Weekend June 3rd – 4th.  

Join us for worship on June 4th, Peace with Justice Sunday, wearing orange.  Anything orange – a shirt, a scarf, a tie, a hat, socks, shoes - the options are endless.  After worship we’ll take a group photo to post on Wesley’s social media showing our support for #WearOrange.
